so sorry you are going through this. I hope the funeral will be some comfort for you.

Tears in Heaven - Eric Clapton?

Those are good suggestions marsbars, both beautiful songs.

I'm so so sorry about your baby boy.

The immediate song that I think of is tears in heaven by Eric Clapton.

There are lots of ladies here who have been where you are and will hold your hand through the dark days. X

So sorry, think the snowman music is lovely, in fact when I was watching it at Xmas made me fill up as it struck me then it would be such moving song to be played at a funeral.

Eric Clapton's 'Tears in heaven' is a lovely song. He composed it for his young son who died in a tragic accident. Have a listen on utube.

oh - just noticed nigglewiggle has also suggested it

I am so very sorry for your loss.

A couple of years ago, I went to the funeral of my friend's baby who was 2 days old when he died. The music included a song that had been a big hit that summer which had been on the radio a lot when his mum and dad had been painting his nursery. Are there any songs that remind you of your pregnancy with him?

Lullabye (Goodnight my angel) Billy Joel
Beautiful Boy - John Lennon

and would second Tears in Heaven, such an emotional song.

Do not stand at my graveside and weep by Katherine Jenkins - a lovely song.
So sorry for your loss, OP.

So so sorry for the loss of your beautiful boy. I can't imagine what you must be going through but I know I've seen other people mention the bereaved parents thread on here, and they could be a real support to you if you wanted to go on there. They may also have some ideas for songs to add the ones already given here. My best friends' baby girl died shortly after birth 5 years ago, and they had Damien Rice "Blower's Daughter" but obviously you might not like this given that you gave birth to a little boy. Thinking of you tonight.

NonnoMum Mon 03-Jan-11 22:29:06

Thinking of you.
Hope you give your beautiful boy a beautiful funeral.

Maybe something that you're not likely to hear too often or when you're out & about. I went to my brother's best friend's funeral and they played a couple of songs that have since caught me out of the blue in a shop or at someone's house and it's quite hard to not get upset.

Just a thought. Do take care of yourself. x

John Lennon - Beautiful Boy

coldtits Mon 03-Jan-11 22:30:31

The only song I can think of would be twinkle Twinkle

I'm so sorry for your loss of your son.

pink4ever Mon 03-Jan-11 22:31:20

So sorry for your terrible loss.Wheh I lost my 1st son I played 2 songs over and over again-the Eva Cassidy version of Over the Rainbow and Debussys Claire de lune(still my favourite piece of music).Hope you find something that will perhaps give you some comfort when you listen to it again in future.
